Rick Parker has seen a lot of changes at Potter Park Zoo since he started as a seasonal employee in 1981 and began working full time in 1987.
Amur Tigers are the biggest cats in the wild, topping out around 600 pounds!
"PPZ rocks because it is not only an amazing zoo that my 4 yr old son loves to visit but a vital part of the community and works hard on conservation."
